New Generation Biofuels Holdings Inc. has completed construction and begun commissioning its 5 MMgy biofuel plant at the port location of Atlantic Terminaling in Baltimore.

New Generation describes its fuel as a second-generation biofuel manufactured using a proprietary emulsification process to stabilize oil-based feedstocks rather than the transesterification process used in biodiesel production.

New Generation Biofuels is targeting large stationary power generators, commercial processors and marine transportation markets for its biofuels. According to the company, the Baltimore facility can expand up to 50 MMgy as the market grows. New Generation Biofuels currently has sales agreements with power producer Dynegy Inc. to supply 1.7 MMgy and the Commonwealth of Massachusetts and the Taunton State Hospital to supply up to 220,000 gallons of renewable biofuel over a year.

"We are pleased that we can now begin producing our second-generation biofuel at our Baltimore plant, whose modular design can accommodate capacity increases as we experience heightened demand for our versatile, cost-effective and technically superior product," said David A. Gillespie, president and chief executive officer of New Generation Biofuels. "Renewable energy has become an essential component of (President Barack) Obama administration's energy policy to address the important issues of energy security and climate change, and we look forward to being part of the solution as we ramp up our production."
